HC Deb 19 February 1951 vol 484 c153W
Lieut.-Colonel Bromley-Davenport

asked the President of the Board of Trade whether he will consider increasing the outsize allowance to manufacturers of ladies' garments, with hip measurements over 48 inches, in view of the fact that there is a demand for larger garments which are in short supply.

Mr. H. Wilson

I have no evidence that the present allowances are inadequate to cover the additional cost of making the largest sizes in women's garments.
